Scrambl'z Diner - Morgan Hill, CA

Scrambl’z in Morgan Hill is a 50s style diner with yellow tables and black and white checkerboard design. It is a happy clean place with cheerful servers and a fun family atmosphere. I was attracted by the “burgers” signed prominently featured on the outside.

I visited on a Friday at lunch. The place was about half full. I ordered up a Bacon Cheeseburger with fries ($8.99), onion rings ($6.99) and a chocolate shake ($3.99).

The onion rings came first - a big pile of crispy battered rings accompanied by ranch dressing. They were hot and tasty and a good appetizer. The shake soon arrived. It was impressively displayed in a plastic mug with prominent swirls of chocolate syrup. It was cold, smooth, thick and tasty.

Finally the burger. The bun looked fresh baked and was nicely toasted. Two small patties with lots of cheese melted around them had two strips of bacon on top. Lettuce, onion and tomato were on the side. I thought the beef was a little overcooked. The burger was serviceable but unimpressive. I will go with my usual comment that it is still better than most fast food chains just by the fact that it is cooked fresh and hot and delivered to you right after it leaves the griddle. The fries were thin slices a little undercooked and not very tasty.
I guess overall, I would have wanted the burger to be a little more creative and more attention paid to the beef. But the restaurant itself was a nice place to have lunch and the people were very friendly. Get the onion rings for sure!

Burger 3 spatulas out of 5
Fries 2 spatulas
Onion Rings 3.5 spatulas
